I’ve been drinking copious amounts of nourishing herbal infusions and teas in an effort to slowly restore my health.
Designed an old-style coat rail from a salvaged skirting board and vintage coat hooks – I design, hubby makes – we're a great team :)
The rail reminds me of, and is based on, my old primary school coat/bag room.
I painted the front entry and the stairwell - which were very, very dark, dingy and uninviting.
Now they are warm and welcoming in their fresh coat of creamy white.
The mornings are still super chilly, and breakfast by the crackling open fire at a favourite café is wonderfully cosy.
Been serenaded by a magpie.
Receive daily visits from a wee feathered friend.
Walks with “this boy” are fewer and far between, as he prefers to sleep most of the day now. But, he's still never far from my side ♥♥
Am totally in love with my new - old - vintage cast iron skillet and lid... all the way from the USA! It's nearly a hundred years old, in perfect condition and is as sturdy as the day it was made. I like to imagine all the meals prepared in it and the hands it has passed through.
A truly rustic, honest and beautiful piece of craftsmanship that we just don't see anymore.
On my studio table.
